    Data is in library QSPL But stay out of the QSPL library, especially on a large, busy system. (Smaller systems can put up with more interference -- not as many users will get angry.) You can effectively hang most user jobs (and some system jobs) by interfering with locks used by your system's spooling subsystem. User jobs that want to open new report files, jobs that are ending and wanting to spool joblogs, and other jobs can hang while you are messing with files that you can't do anything with anyway. Tom

    What is the type of a spool file... For most purposes, spooled files don't have a file 'type'. There are no general file operations that can be done with spooled files. Operations over spooled files using commands all use "SPLF" as part of the command names themselves, e.g., DLTSPLF and CPYSPLF. There is no need to specify a "type". Tom
